The government has set up a site in Nevada . . . Yucca Mountain, maybe? . . . to send all it's nuclear waste to, right? I hereby propose that EVERY criminal sentenced to death should be sent to us barbaric, Neanderthal, snaggle-toothed Texans . . . because being sentenced to the death penalty means something in our fair state.
Yes, yes, we have the occasional slimeball who manages to fall through the cracks . . . but for the most part we carry out the sentences in a timely manner.
Different state laws you say? Fine, let the slimeballs appeal all they want . . . but in today's internet world they could do it via a video-cam. We're an impatient lot, we'll give them all the rope they want . . . but we'll keep tugging like crazy on that sucker until they're dealt with.
I was joking when I started this . . . but it started making more and more sense the more I wrote. Susan Sarandumb, Sean Peanut-Brain, Danny "I love Fidel" Glover, and all the other Cali-liberals won't cotton to the reception us Texicans would give them if they showed up to protest here. They damn sure won't be welcomed with open arms like they are in California when they start their No Death Penalty crapola.
A few years ago, a few hundred Mass prisoners were flown to Texas to serve terms there. I think your idea has merit.
you go!!! yessire, those hollywood types, scared....just scared... might throw rocks! ;o)
...but for the most part we carry out the sentences in a timely manner.
